Review: “Expressions of DID” – (Wo)Men Speak Out

I ran across a good video about DID that Gudrun Frerich posted on her Facebook page – with a link to a video on YouTube called “Expressions of DID.

The video is plain (but in a good way), and gives a good idea what it feels like hiding this from others, and also from yourself. In my opinion, it doesn’t have the same impact as “Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder‘ that I reviewed here, but it is still attempts to be educational from the inside perspective.

The video comes from a website called The Infinite Mind that is dedicated to removing the stigma of DID and educate others. It is different from typical sites and blogs in that they provide services related to education. Here is some information from their services page:

An Infinite Mind’s mission is to educate and advocate for people with trauma based dissociation with a primary focus on Dissociative Identity Disorder by reaching out to a variety of public institutions, and professional organizations. We consult with professional trauma organizations to provide insight and feedback into the realities of DID. We write articles for survivor journals and magazines, appear in local and national media, and speak at a variety of community and professional events in an effort to spread awareness and inspire change. We provide speakers on the topic of DID as well as related mental health issues. If you are in need of a speaker, please contact us to see how we can help you.

So, the link is here to help build up their reader base, and hopefully we will see more information there in the future.
